    “Having experienced shoulder pain for most of my adult life after a snowboarding injury I just thought I had to cope with all the associated ailments and constant pain. I recently Tore my supraspinatus and went to Cathy for assistance. After just a few sessions of deep tissue massage, cupping and needling I now realise how much pain I was dealing with needlessly. The improvement has been way above my expectations. My quality of life has improved and my mental state is greatly uplifted. Nobody can fix the tear in my tendon, that’s a slow heal but to remove all of the associated pain and feel that recovery is in sight has been fantastic. I highly recommend Cathy and her caring yet professional approach to injury rehabilitation.”

    “Cath is an inspiring & motivated trainer. I really dislike exercising but Cath’s ability to create work outs that are unique to me & my body is incredible. She makes the sessions fun, while weaving in technical aspects. I’ve seen really positive results in my strength & body shape. I highly recommend Cath!”

    “Cathy is the kind of person you want on your health team. She’s passionate, innovative and her treatments work!! I wouldn’t see anyone else. I recommend her to everyone. I love how Cath weaves in dry needling, massage and movement as well as other holistic modalities to make sure you leave nourished on all levels. Cath’s always ahead of the game, and is a total legend to boot.”

    “Receiving a massage and dry needling treatment from Cathy was an incredibly relaxing and deeply therapeutic experience. I’ve received countless massages, acupuncture and osteopathic treatments from many therapists over the years, and I can honestly say Cathy’s was one of the best I’ve ever had. I immediately felt her years of experience through her intuitive and strong hands, and felt very confident in her ability to diagnose and soothe the stresses in my body. Thanks again Cathy- I’m looking forward to our next appointment.”
